BHI’s staff and research fellows will be actively involved in researching the topics and issues that concern its constituents and the game. In addition, the Institute will provide funding to doctoral students and established researchers carrying out research closely aligned with BHI’s mandate.

BHI will facilitate dissemination both directly and indirectly. Through its own publications, it will make its members and media aware of related academic research as well as the issues that will dictate future advances in hockey. It will fund attendance at conferences to present hockey-related findings and will sponsor conferences specifically focused on hockey-related research.

Drawing on its findings and network of researchers, BHI will also undertake research on behalf of members and clients.
